Leadership By Virtue: The Economy and a ‘cultural noise in the background ... (Reblog)

The word "economy" can be traced back to the Greek word "oikonomos" meaning ‘one who manages a household.’ ... : Leadership By Virtue: The Economy and a ‘cultural noise in the background

Jaro Berce's blog, Leadership By Virtue, is a blog about his book by that name.  Just recently started following it and picked up on this because it was listed as one of the “Popular Posts”. Indeed discussing the economy is always “popular”. ☺  Those so-called “discussions” can be downright ruthless sometimes. We're talking serious kung fu fighting! Yet and still, in my opinion, gaining even an introductory or elementary knowledge and understanding of economics has its value. 

It's also interesting to note how West meets East, i.e. how westerners make application of eastern philosophy and principles.

Derek's Home and Business Blog: Your Blogging Reputation Is At Stake (Reblog)

Reblogging from Derek, my Facebook friend, and fellow blogger.  It's a guest post at his blog.  Even though this post is dated 2013, the advice is still applicable.

"It doesn't matter if you blog to put food on the table or if you do it for fun. Either way, you've likely dedicated a lot of time and effort into creating a stellar reputation as a top-notch blogger - a reputation that you need to protect.

If you've mastered the art of blogging, but have no idea how to maintain your glowing image, here are a few tips."

Terrific advice.  Tip #4 was written just for me.

It's the Easter season. That time of the year when ... the Cadbury Easter Creme Eggs are found in all the stores. I love those treats!  Do you know they make Easter eggs with Oreo cookies?  

  • Fascinating Facts Recorded in Food History: "With the rise of Christianity in Western Europe, the church adapted many pagan customs and the egg, as a symbol of new life, came to represent the Resurrection. Some Christians regarded the egg as a symbol for the stone being rolled from the sepulchre." (Source:  How the Cadbury Easter Eggs Became a Tradition

No Coffins – Organic Burial Pods = Recycling's Finest Hour (Reblog)

Organic Burial Pods???!! 

I am so on board with this concept!!  

Isn’t everyone??


I mean … a Jew or Christian surely can’t object. 

It’s totally scriptural.  :)
“In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.” 

Genesis 3:19

Forget Coffins – Organic Burial Pods Will Turn Your Loved Ones Into Trees | Bored Panda (Reblog)




Forget Coffins - Organic Burial Pods Will Turn Your Loved Ones Into Trees

The idea of coming full circle and returning whence we came is captured perfectly by this beautiful new burial method developed in Italy. The Capsula Mundi project by designers Anna Citelli and Raoul Bretzel has developed an organic, biodegradable burial capsule that will turn the deceased's body into nutrients for a tree that will grow out of their remains.

Trees Deserve Respect

Ailanthus altissima is an ornamental tree grown mainly for shade and also for its leaves which the silkworm feeds on. Sounds prettier when it is called by its unscientific name: "tree of heaven". The acacia thrives in the wilderness of Paran (the location of several historic events in the Bible).

Book Review: 'The Man with the Golden Gun' by Ian Fleming (Reblog)

Many people know a lot about Bond movies. 

What about the Bond books?





  • "Casino Royale" was the first Bond book published in 1953. 


  • After that, Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, wrote a book a year. This brilliant writer died of a heart attack in 1964. That's a little over ten years!! 

  • Bond novels were published between the years 1953 – 1966. 

It is not often that I come across a review of one of the Fleming books. Lots of movie reviews but not book reviews. 


Reblogging/Sharing a link to a book review of "The Man with the Golden Gun" from The Friendly Shelf.  It might tempt to want to READ all of Fleming's original books. :)

Can Gandhi find a place in today's Corporate and Management world? | Anas Ebrahem (Reblog)

Gandhian methods, characteristics, ideas, and ideals? Rituals of visionary leaders? Gandhi was a lawyer so finding a place in today’s Corporate and Management world would likely not be difficult for him to do. But his visionary methods of leadership would probably also get him kicked out of that same world! :) 

Sharing this excellent post by Anas Ebrahem.

Movies and TV Series filmed in Ireland, but NOT set in Ireland : The Teeny tiny à Tout Faire (Reblog)

Well I know that I'm supposed to be tooting my own horn but why can't I toot about blogs I like as well? It's just as much fun reading other people's blogs as it is publishing my own. Re-blogging a link from a super cool entertainment blog that caught my eye.


The Teeny tiny à Tout Faire: [Irish Week] Movies and TV Series filmed in Ireland, but NOT set in Ireland



Why do I like this blog? It shares entertainment-related tidbits, fun facts, etc. that are of interest to me. I like the post categories; especially “Who Wore It Best?”   

(Loved that contrast photo of Lupita and Beyoncé.  Shared it via my Tumblr.)



I enjoy the “Movie Reviews” category because there are reviews of vintage movies. The publisher uses the word “vintage”. But sometimes we say “movie classics” or “old movies”. 

(I love all things vintage, so I'm happy with the blogger using this descriptive term in lieu of “classic” or “old”.   Shared the review of "Father Goose" via Pinterest where I collect "Everything Vintage". )

Additionally, there are recommendations regarding foreign films (i.e. non-American) and I'm always on the hunt for non-American movies or TV series.




Will you be adding this blog to your list of "Blogs I Like"?
